Halton Region announced today that it will be accepting proposals for the Halton Region Community Investment Fund (HRCIF). The HRCIF provides funding to non-profit organizations that deliver community health or social service programs and initiatives to Halton residents. One-year and multi-year grants are available to organizations that meet eligibility criteria.
The non-profit sector plays a critical role in Halton by making positive impacts on the quality of life for Halton residents. The goal of the Community Investment Fund is to support innovative programs that will further enhance community partnerships and the lives of low-income residents, youth and seniors.
One-year grants are for non-profit, charitable or community organizations for short-term, time-limited, small capital and/or innovative projects. One-year grants are awarded for a maximum of one year and up to $20,000. The deadline for the one-year grant application is December 5, 2014 at 2 p.m. There is $200,000 available in total funding for one-year grants in 2015.
Multi-year grants provide up to three years of program funding to charitable organizations. The deadline for the multi-year grant application is December 12, 2014 at 2 p.m. There is $502,000 available in total funding for multi-year grants in 2015.
Potential applicants are encouraged to attend an information session which will be in Oakville on Tuesday, November 18, 6:00 – 7:30 p.m. at the Queen Elizabeth Park Community Centre (Multi-Purpose Room B), 2302 Bridge Road.
